What a fabulous place, in a prime location, our room was spotlessly clean and the bed really comfortable. We had a room at the front overlooking the street. The staff were friendly and the landlords Karen & Kevin were lovely. I can’t wait to return.

This is a great little pub, almost, but not quite on the seafront. I've been there a few times and always been welcome. On this visit I enjoyed a great live band. Well recommended and popular with locals

The rooms are very pretty and sparkling clean. The breakfast was delicious. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in ilfracombe. Its become my happy place. X

Has very eclectic style in decor. All sorts of paraphernalia. Sells ales & all the usual suspects in keg and bottles . Has a cracking little old school 10 pin bowling alley actually in the pub . Also has live music. Friendly place close to the harbour area. We'll worth a visit.
